2021 Fantasy Outlook
After three seasons as a depth center option behind Rudy Gobert in Utah, Bradley got some room to expand his game in Philly and OKC last year. In 42 appearances, he averaged 7.1 points and 5.7 rebounds while shooting 66.5 percent from the field in 16.3 minutes. It was his best season from a per-game fantasy production perspective (rank 242). This season, Bradley will join Chicago on a one-year deal. He has potential to see marginally more minutes and appears to be the team's primary backup behind Nikola Vucevic. He probably won't be worth drafting in fantasy aside from potentially pairing him with Vucevic in a deeper best-ball league. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Bradley was born Jan. 8, 1998 to parents Tony Sr. and Vanessa Bradley. His father played basketball at Florida A&M. Bradley attended high school in his home town at Bartow High School, where he led the team to four district titles and a 92-29 record. He was named a McDonald's All-American his senior year and won Gatorade Player of the Year in Florida in 2016 after averaging 22.8 points and 12.6 rebounds. Bradley excelled off the court as well in his prep years, as he was a three-time member of the National Honor Society. You can follow Bradley on Twitter @ToBrad1, and he's also active on his Twitch channel (twitch.tv/tobrad1).

College/International Summary

Bradley played one season of college basketball at North Carolina, appearing in 38 games as a reserve. He had a career scoring high of 14 on Nov. 21 against Chaminade. Bradley's best rebounding total came Nov. 18 against Hawaii, when he collected 13 boards. When it was all said and done, Bradley averaged 7.1 points and 5.1 rebounds. The Tar Heels also saw team success that season, as the won the 2017 National Championship game against fellow No. 1 seed Gonzaga.

Bradley agreed to a one-year deal with the Bulls on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Last season, Bradley averaged 7.1 points and 5.7 rebounds in 16.3 minutes per game as he spilt time with the 76ers and the Thunder. The 23-year-old will likely compete against Cristiano Felicio for the Bulls' backup center role behind Nikola Vucevic. Vucevic has played well over 30.0 minutes per game in each of his last three seasons, so even if Bradley beats out Felicio, his role will still be minimal.

During his second appearance of the season -- a Jan. 9 matchup against Denver -- Bradley finished with 11 points and 15 rebounds to mark his first double-double of the season. Bradley made his first start of the season during a Jan. 31 matchup against the Pacers, finishing with two points and four rebounds in 17 minutes.

During an Apr. 13 matchup against Utah, Bradley recorded his first double-double as a Thunder, finishing with 16 points and 14 rebounds in 25 minutes of action. Bradley finished the season with three double-doubles. Bradley scored 10 or more points 13 times. He grabbed at least five rebounds 26 times. He recorded at least three blocks three times.

2019

Bradley saw the biggest role of his career during the 2019-20 campaign -- his third in the league and with the Jazz. He appeared in a career-high 58 games and drew a career-high three starts as well. The center averaged 4.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 0.6 blocks across 11.4 minutes per game while shooting a career-high 66.7 percent from the field. Bradley had an excellent performance Nov. 25 against the Bucks. During the contest, he set career highs in blocks (three), assists (two) and rebounds (11) while also scoring eight points in the start. He would go on to reach that number of blocks two more times, that number of assists three more times and that number of rebounds once more during the season. On Jan. 14, Bradley swiped a career-high three steals in addition to posting four points and six rebounds. Arguably Bradley's best performance of the season was Aug. 7 against the Spurs during NBA bubble seeding play. He matched his career-high 15 points (7-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT) while also recording 11 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and one steal in just 22 minutes. That was one of Bradley's four games with double-digit rebounds, one of his three performances with double-digit points and one of his eight performances with multiple blocks. Bradley appeared in six of Utah's seven playoff games, totaling nine points, 23 rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist. His best playoff performance was Game 2 in the 19-point win over the Nuggets, with Bradley recording three points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

2018

Bradley began the 2018-19 season in the G League with the Salt Lake City Stars. He ended up appearing in 20 games -- all starts -- and averaging 13.5 points and 7.1 rebounds. That rebounding mark ended up being the third-best on the team that season. His best scoring total came early, as Bradley put up 24 points (12-20 FG) in a Nov. 9 matchup against the Texas Legends. His season-best rebounding game came less than a week later against the South Bay Lakers, when Bradley collected 13 boards. He had double-digit rebounding performances in the G League twice more that season -- Nov. 2 and Nov. 30. Bradley saw his first NBA action that season Dec. 29 against the Knicks, when he recorded three rebounds in eight minutes on the court. Not too long afterwards, Bradley underwent surgery to correct a partial meniscectomy and debridement of his right knee. He was back in the G League for a few rehab games in March before rejoining the Jazz at the end of the year, and ended up appearing in two more games. Bradley saw brief action April 5 against the Kings, but got more run in the regular season finale against the Clippers. In that matchup, Bradley had career-highs in points (15), rebounds (10) and minutes played (24).

2017

Tony Bradley spent his first NBA season learning the ropes alongside an emerging duo of Donavan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. Bradley made his NBA debut for the Utah Jazz on Nov. 5 against the Houston Rockets, recording an assist in almost six minutes of play. Bradley scored his first career NBA basket in his second game, a Nov. 17 contest against the Brooklyn Nets in which he also grabbed two rebounds. Bradley's best NBA showing that year came against Oklahoma City on Dec. 20. That night, he scored four points and grabbed three rebounds in seven minutes. Bradley spent 24 games in the G League, and averaged 15.4 points and 10 rebounds a contest for the Salt Lake City Stars.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Despite exclusively coming off the bench as a freshman, 6-foot-10 Bradley became North Carolina’s first one-and-done player since Brandan Wright left the Tarheels back in 2008. Though Bradley saw just 14.6 minutes per game, he was highly efficient, posting 7.1 points and 5.1 rebounds while shooting 57.3 percent from the field. He’s certainly developmental project considering his limited collegiate experience, but boasts a 7-foot-5 wingspan, solid fundamentals and proven rebounding ability, giving him legitimate upside. That said, his shooting is largely a question mark and he’s an average athlete with subpar stamina. Looking at the shell though, Bradley makes for a nice reserve option behind Rudy Gobert, who is also a long, defensive-minded center. However, Gobert will likely see between 30 and 35 minutes per game next season, and with Derrick Favors getting some time at the position, that could leave anywhere between five and 15 minutes for Bradley, which is far from ideal in Fantasy. For that reason, it’s probably safe to avoid the rookie in the majority of formats.
